    Does 150 sound ok for a loose/complete Monstructor? It's ugly as sin I think, but still...pretty rare. Know someone who's selling it for that much...tempted...

    Complete, loose and in great shape with no GPS?

    If so, I personally think that is a GREAT Deal. I paid $225 for mine from Ebay in great shape about a year ago so I would say go for it.

    I paid £80 (about $120) for mine a month ago. Last one I saw on eBay went for ~ $400.

    Yes, that's a steal.

    $150 for a Monstructor is a definite BUY!. I have seen him go as high as $450 for a loose complete one in the last 6 months.

    Buy it! Buy it NOW!!! He's been around $300-$450 lately. $150 is the price I paid about 4 years ago.

    The combined mode won't win any "best gestalt" awards but the shells have personality in spades. $25 apiece for any TF from 1988-1989 is a good deal. Excluding Micromaster Patrols and Transports, of course.

    I got mine at Botcon 2007 for $250 which was a bit high I thought but I know he keeps rising in price, hopefully he still has it for you man, definitely pick him up for that price.

    Though $25 for each 1990 micromaster transport unit would be a steal also. I finally finished all the USA micromasters. Those transport units hurt the most.

    Monstructor is easily USD $300 upwards these days. Any amount lower than the quoted would be a sweet bonus definitely. :thumbs2:

    A few months ago I sold my incomplete one (missing some shell backs and guns) for about $220. Just like everyone else said, complete for $150 is an amazing deal.

    Unfortunately, the guy sold it just a few hours before I got in touch with him. Ah well...easy come easy go...what can you do.

    You (and whoever you want to join you) can help me look for a gun for my Icepick, that's what! :D 

    If you're interested in Monstructor, at least you have a good gauge of what it's worth from this thread. I wish you well on your search! :)
